    Baseball / T-Ball Clinics

    We offer instructional baseball programs for boys and girls ages 4 - 14 of all skill levels throughout the school year! Our goal is to improve each player's skills, with an emphasis on fun, fair play and teamwork.

    • Spring Training: Baseball Spring Training is an outdoor weekend clinic that focuses on fundamental skills and high quality repetitions to get players ready for the beginning of their season. Our instructors review the proper mechanics of hitting, fielding and pitching and provide the players with ample opportunity to practice each skill through a series of high-energy drills. In addition, various team concepts will be introduced including cut-off plays, pitcher fielding practice, and situational hitting.
    • Instructional Leagues: Our baseball and T-ball outdoor instructional leagues give players the opportunity to be a part of a team while still developing their baseball skills! Each week our outstanding coaches will spend approximately 20 - 30 minutes on skill-development drills, with the rest of the time spent on game-play.

    Check out our spring schedule below for more information! Registration for our spring programs will open to the general public on February 8th. If you were registered for a spring program that was cancelled in 2020, please do not wait until February 8th to sign up, but instead email us ASAP to secure your spot for the spring.

    True North Sports Camps’ baseball programs are run by North Toronto Baseball Camp, which was started by the founders of True North Sports Camps. A staple in the Toronto community since 2007.

    COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies

    1. All staff and participants will be required to complete a questionnaire before each session including the following:
      1. Do you have a fever (was your temperature 37.8°C or greater this morning)?
      2. Are you experiencing any COVID symptoms? (new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, nausea, or vomiting)
      3. Have you been in known contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID within the past 14 days?
      4. Are you currently awaiting COVID test results?
      5. Have you returned from travel outside Canada in the past 14 days?
        If any staff or participants answer yes to any of the questions above, they unfortunately will not be allowed to participate
    2. Upon sign-in and sign-out, parents and guardians will be asked their name to allow for contact tracing in the event it is required.
    3. Staff will be required to take their temperature before each session and we encourage participants to do so as well.
    4. All staff members will be wearing masks at all times. Masks are optional for participants.
    5. Before the start of the program, both participants and staff will be required to sanitize their hands. Each staff member will be provided with hand sanitizer to facilitate on-site sanitation.
    6. Parents, guardians and siblings are asked to physically distance from all participants (aside from any participant that resides in the same household) and other bystanders. As the activities take place outdoors, masks are encouraged for any bystanders but are not required.
    7. Group / team sizes will be restricted to a maximum of 6 participants and one coach. The groups will stay the same (including the coach) for the entirety of the program. We have decreased the maximum number of participants in these programs by 40% (in pre-COVID we accepted up to 40 players, we are only accepting a maximum of 20-24 players in each time slot).
    8. Whenever possible, all participants and staff will be required to physically distance by at least 2 metres from one another. This applies within their designated group / team as well as from other participants and coaches in the program. Unfortunately, when working with young children, it will not always be possible to maintain physical distancing. However, our staff will do their best to enforce physical distancing and we will plan our programming accordingly. In situations where staff and participants are unable to physically distance (i.e. when a player is waiting on base), we will be sure to minimize prolonged contact.
    9. Equipment will be sanitized at the end of each weekly session.

    Please note these COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies are subject to change based on the recommendations and restrictions from public health at the time of the program.

    Cancellation Policy

    • Cancellations by Participants - In the event a participant would like to cancel their registration in a spring clinic, whether before or after the program has started, a full credit for the amount paid (or pro-rated if the program has already started) will be provided. No refunds will be provided to cancellations requested by participants at any time.
    • Cancellations by True North - In the event True North has to cancel all or part of a program, for any reason whatsoever, the following credit / refund policy will apply:
      • Partial session cancellation (i.e. inclement weather presents itself mid-way through a session one week) = no credits or refunds provided
      • 1 - 2 full sessions cancelled = a credit for the cancelled sessions will be provided
      • 3 or more full sessions cancelled = families can elect to receive either a credit or refund for the cancelled sessions
      • Spring Training Only = we'll be providing credits if 1-day is cancelled, if both days are cancelled families can elect to receive either a credit or refund for the cancelled sessions

    Please note that credits are transferable among siblings, can be used for any of our future programs and never expire.

    Our spring programs take place outdoors in both rain and shine. As we do not have access to indoor facilities to use for programming, there are two circumstances in which we will cancel a session due to inclement weather:

    (1) poor field conditions (large puddles, extremely slippery conditions, etc.);

    (2) severe weather (heavy rain with limited visibility, thunder/lightning, very strong winds, etc.).

    If a session is cancelled before it begins, one of our Directors will contact parents via email as soon as possible. If you do not hear from us in advance, please assume the program is going ahead as scheduled. Our staff may decide to cancel a session on-site if field conditions worsen or severe weather presents itself during a program. In that case, our coaches will ensure the safety of all participants and telephone parents to arrange for early pick-up.
